I ordered from Vistaprint and my invites came out great. You can get samples from them so you can see what type of paper they have. The only thing I didn’t like were the envelopes. They were too simple and thin. I ended up purchasing separate envelopes, which are a bit snug for the invites. I didn’t realize this until after I purchased the invites, but the sizes are a bit off. For example, the 5×7 isn’t truly a 5×7 if you measure it. Overall though,  I’m happy with my invites. I didn’t want to spend a lot either. And they’re even better when you catch a good deal. They always have promos out. I would definitely recommend it. Just buy envelopes elsewhere so it’s nicer.

I have a love/hate relationship with vista print. I’ve had a bunch of friends use them (use with coupons!) and while the price was awesome, they had to be sent back a couple of times to be fixed. Vistaprint fixed the issues for free, but in one case they had to be sent back like three times. They did come with a lot of free swag, which was nice. We had to sit and assemble the invites, not a bit deal at all, but not sure if it was worth the headache of going back and forth with the invites.

That being said, I will probably use them.

I used Vistaprint for my holiday cards last year. My first set that arrived was much too dark (I had added my own photo). Their customer service was great about helping me adjust it and order a second set, and they came quickly. there was a link to view a proof that I hadn’t seen before. Even though they were great about getting my issue fixed, doing that in the first place would have saved me a big headache!

I used them, but just went with a sheet invitation and envelope, not the whole 9 yards.  They were absolutely fine, I used them for my save the dates, too.  The photo on the STD was exactly like what I submitted.  Colors/quality were all just fine.  Remember, it’s going to go into the trash, for the most part.  You don’t need glitter, embossment, rainbows, parchment, etc.  The invites will look great for as long as they need to.   My leftovers still look like the day I got them a year-ish ago.

Cheekie0077:  my mom used VP for our couples shower invitation and I really like how they turned out! She didn’t use the standard paper though. She used the next step up. Can’t remember what it was called. I’ll have to ask her.

Cheekie0077:  I ordered my invites from vistaprint! I am very satisfied 🙂 however, I didn’t use their actual “invitations” I made my own design and uploaded it to their “postcards” while they were 50% off! Great deal! But I also wasn’t super picky about my invites

I’ve ordered engagement party invitations and address labels from Vista and they turned out great and exactly as shown in the previews online.  I ordered the standard paper for my invitations and was happy with the quality.  I’m sure the paper upgrades are lovely too.  Customer service is excellent and my items shipped very quickly.  They always have coupon codes and sales so check the website periodically or sign up for their mailing list.

I used vista print for our invitations and save the dates. I thought they turned out really well, and the price was awesome. Some people don’t like that the envelopes are think, but the envelopes are the first thing going in the trash. They regularly have 40-50% off sales too, so you should look out for that.

I ordered from VP and was very pleased. The only thing negative was that some of the invites have a band of white at the top (the background is red). That can be trimmed off so no big deal but still.

I used them too, for the same reason. We did a one sided invite, no rsvp card or any of the extra stuff. We did one step up on the paper too and loved how it came out.

I used them for holiday cards a few years ago and party invites about a week ago. I really like them and would recommend them. Use a coupon though. That’s a site that you never pay full price on.

I’ve always had great experiences with VistaPrint – they printed my business cards, my shop signage, and my STD.  I didn’t use them for my invites, only because I found a better deal with Staples (the prices were similar, but no shipping with Staples because I could pick them up at the local store, and I got them quicker).  But I would absolutely use VP with no hesitation at all.  And like a PP said, if they make a mistake, their customer service is very good at correcting it for free.

Check out catprint.com too! Their invitations are $.50 each and include envelopes. Same as VP, they will send you samples of their paper for free before you order.

I ordered our invitations from VP and they were perfect! I did do some upgrades with the paper quality and envelopeS. The envelopes that are includes are super cheap.
